EMES-SOCENT Conference Selected Papers, ECSP-LG13-09

In the context of enabling public sector policies and programs, the role of social innovation activity in fostering more sustainable forms of local and regional development is explored in this paper. Research conducted for a Doctorate study is drawn on, and an early representation of some of the themes that will be explored in the full thesis is presented. The role of diverse economic agents and processes in social innovation activities are highlighted, and connections between these and the cultivation of sustainable forms of local and regional development are established.
